Attorney James Bailey, Jr. of Wilmington, DE; repeat offender, tax scofflaw

 
The state of Delaware provided James F. Bailey, Jr. with a law license in 1975 after he graduated from Wake Forest Law School located in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
 
The Delaware Board of Professional Responsibility found James guilty of the following misconduct.
  1. Failure to reconcile (balance) escrow account for one-year period
  2. Escrow account held more of the firm’s fund then the Rules allowed
  3. There were overdraft balances in an escrow account for about one year
  4. Discrepancies existed in one escrow account for six months whereby checks totaling $27,800 were withdrawn and deposited into the firms account
  5. Overdraft balances in firms operating account every month for two years
  6. Failed to timely file and pay the firm’s corporate taxes for three years
  7. Filed to timely file and pay Delaware gross receipts taxes for at least two quarters
  8. Failed to timely pay his individual income tax obligations for two years
  9. Falsely certified (perjury) to the Supreme Court that he was in compliance with his tax and/or recordkeeping obligations for four years
The board and the Supreme Court went on to determine that Jimmy knowingly caused the invasion of client trust funds, serial violations of tax laws and gross negligence in handling trust funds.
 
As a consequence of his misconduct, the enablers for Attorney Misfits sitting on the Delaware Supreme Court punished Jimmy by gifting him with a complimentary 6-month suspension of his law license.
 
As we speak (ca. May 2012) James practices law with The Bailey Law firm at 3 Mill Road in Wilmington, Delaware.
 
On his self-serving website at www.jamesbaileylaw.com, Jimmy doesn’t make any mention of the fact that his law license was suspended and/or that he’s a tax scofflaw. I suppose if he did it would only limit his future victim pool.
